Sharing is caring!

It’s update time again.  We’re at the three week mark in my One Room Challenge.  In week one, I introduced you to my Coastal Cool Twin Bedroom, and progress is coming along slowly.  So so slowly.

I think I’m going to be working like a mad woman this next week to feel caught up!

Here’s where we’re at so far.

Feature Wall

I started in on my wall decal feature wall.  Basically, I bought adhesive-backed vinyl in 4 colors (well, white and three shades of blue).  I just cut the vinyl into triangles and started sticking them to the wall.  The plan is to have white triangles throughout, and then do an ombre effect with the shades of blue.

As you can tell, my daughter helped add the triangles at the bottom-left of the picture.  Luckily, the vinyl is repositionable.  I also have to cut and add the darkest shade of blue at the bottom.

Our Seaside Theater Corner

Does online shopping count as progress?  If so, them I’ve made a TON of progress on this!

My two big selections from Minted arrived, and I’m thrilled.

First: this giant print.  It’s seriously giant… like 30″ x 40″.

I want to use this print as the backdrop for our theater, to give it the effect that we are overlooking the ocean.

The plan for this fabric is to use it as a valence over the theater and than hang light, airy curtains.

So where exactly is this Seaside Theater going to go?  Right here:

As you may recall from Week 1, there used to be a dresser in that corner.  I moved the dresser into the closet.  Now, if someone could just explain why my kids put Dottie the Giraffe in time-out!

Trundle Bed Plans

I mentioned the other week that I kept one of our crib mattresses.  The twins like having it when we play, and I think it will come in handy when we have overnight guests who have little kids.

So… I’m going to attempt to make some sort of frame with wheels.  And if that doesn’t work, I will just keep a spare mattress under the bed.  That’s ok, right?!?

So that’s all for now.  I  still have some major work to do on two of the larger elements in this room, so wish me luck!!
